Bengals-Chiefs AFC Championship: Travis Kelce 'should play'

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce appeared in the AFC Championship final injury report with a back problem.

The good news for the Chiefs is that the tight end has practiced fully friday. However, he wears a questionable before the title game against the Cincinnati Bengals. But more good news for the Chiefs emerged late Saturday night – courtesy of ESPNNFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Schefter said that although Kelce had back spasms to close out the week of practice, he was still “supposed to play” against the Bengals. Kelce hasn’t missed a game this regular season, compiling a career-high 110 catches for over 1,300 yards and 12 touchdowns. Kelce had 152 targets on the season, 51 more than the next leader (JuJu Smith-Schuster).

Kelce had 14 catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs’ Divisional Round victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Wide receivers Mecole Hardman (pelvis) and Justin Watson (illness) are also questionable headed to Sunday’s game. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) is ready to go.
